History

Entrance at J.E. Foust & Son Funeral DirectorsFoust & Son Funeral Home, 523 South Main Street in Grapevine, Texas, is in the old Yates home. Originally built around 1870, the home was given to Junius Edward Merritt Yates and his bride Kate Jenkins by Jenkins' parents.

By the 1880s, J.E. Foust was building a general merchandise store near Texas and Main Street. In addition to his other wares, he began selling a confection known as lemon ice, a forerunner to the present day snow cone. In 1889, Foust expanded his business to include farm equipment, hardware and caskets. Quite early in his casket making business, the young Foust expanded his business to meet the needs of the community by hiring wagons and drivers for funeral services.

In the mid-1940s, J.E. Foust II bought the Yates home and moved his family into the elegant plantation style home, all the while his funeral business continued to expand. During this time, most funerals were held at the family’s home or at a church. As time progressed, the custom of holding a funeral service in someone else’s home became more socially acceptable, and the Foust family began adjusting the house to accommodate these needs.

In 2014, Foust & Son merged with Dignity Memorial to better serve the Grapevine community. Today, we offer families a variety of funeral services including bereavement travel and full-service receptions. We are happy to be known for by our core values: Respect, Integrity, Service Excellence and Enduring Relationships.

"We really liked the location (Old Town Keller) for visitation. The rooms were separate with the viewing, and family and friends liked that."

"My Mom passed away unexpectedly here in Texas. With Sydney Warner's help, we were able to have her arrangements made and handled from here, and she was flown to Rhode Island for the burial services. My Mom looked beautiful, and the process could not have been smoother, more respectful, or efficient. J.E. Faust was amazing."
